going to be very difficult. you know, this has been true since the day after the sandy hook tragedy and it's hard to see how it has changed. the math is just extremely hard. first in the senate where you have a lot of red-state democrats whose strategy electorally has been to diffuse the gun issue, to be pro-nra, pro-second amendment. >> yeah. >> and then you get to the house where there's a republican majority and we just haven't seen a lot of evidence of republicans really defecting on this issue. >> i want to bring in congressman the democrat from long island there and congressman, do we have you there? there we go. there's the congressman. thank you very much, congressman. from rhode island. i think we got that in there, at least. good to see you again, sir. >> you, too, craig. let me pick up where molly just left off there. political feasibility, is there a chance here that the weapons assault ban gets passed? >> it comes down to whether the speaker of the house will bring a bill to the floor? i believe it would pass in a bipartisan way if they brought an assault weapons bill t

sandy hook, but then you had the usual suspects, whether it was the mayors or from these different cities, liberals from california, and i think you are going to have to see some different tactics. things like emmanuel -- rahm emanuel trying. also, i mean, wal-mart is a big player in here, right? i mean, they sell guns, but they are also very cognizant of the sort of image that they have. remember, it was michelle obama around her obesity effort went to wal-mart and said, listen, you should sell different sorts of -- you have to have corporate buy-in, and wal-mart could be a sort of pressure point in this fight. >> colin, in terms of that, in terms of something like this bank of america piece that rahm emanuel is pursuing, one would think that there are a lot of consumers that would want to get on board. people who bank at bank of america who want to participate in getting broader gun safety laws many this country. to what extent are you guys at the brady campaign working in concert with this or working with grassroots networks to insure that there is more of a sort of sea change i

republicans have at least begun to back off on the debt ceiling fight. you note that sandy aid passed even though it only got 46 republican votes in the house. it seems to me this strategy of laying out what you want and then negotiating is better than trying to figure out what the other side wants. >> chairman steel, there's been some discussion as to whether this was even, many of the, that progressive of a speech, but the reaction from conservative outlets -- >> oh, baby, it was. >> i have been waiting for the real barack obama to show up, and i don't mean that as a criticism. i mean that honestly. knowing him as i have come to know him over the years, going back to when he first came to washington as a senator, that's the guy that i as chairman was prepared to do battle against and framed my chairmanship and even wrote a book about how to defeat this agenda, this very progressive agenda for conservatives to wake up coming out of the slumps of 2006 and 2008. >> can i say one thing, though, and ezra, i would like to get your thoughts on this. i thought it was a progressive vision fo

authority language. the senate was good enough to put it into the senate version of the sandy supplemental. it did not get into the house side. we're still looking for the house to act. with respect to mali, there was a country that had been making progress on its democracy and unfortunately it suffered a military coup by low ranking military officers, which threw it into a state of instability. with the tore regs, some groups as well as other groups had been in the employ of gadhafi for year and used them as mercenaries with his fall they came out of libya bringing huge amounts of weapons from the enormous stores of weapons that gadhafi had that insurgents liberated as well as others. and they came into northern mali at the same time there was a move by al qaeda to establish a base in northern mali. we have been working to try to upgrade security around northern mali among a number of the countries, algeria is the only one with any real ability to do that. most of these countries do have the capacity to do that. we are now trying to help put together an african force so that african soldi
